Research Interest: Human African Trypanosomiasis surveillance and diagnosis - study of the biology and epidemiology of trypanosomiasis as a disease and that of the tsetse fly
Dr. Anne Nalunkuma Kazibwe completed her Ph.D. in 2008 at the University of Glasgow in the field of Molecular Parasitology where she looked at factors influencing the spread and selection of drug resistance in Human African Trypanosomiasis in Uganda.
Her research focus for the GHES fellowship was transcriptome and metabolome of trypanosome infected wild tsetse flies from Uganda that could lead to drug targets or potential biomarkers associated with trypanosome establishment in the vector.
